Hoyt, who has worked 32 years at Wells Fargo, half of which was spent managing the Wholesale Banking business. After stepping down from his position, Hoyt plans to stay at the bank until June 30, at which point he plans to retire.Of his retirement, Hoyt said, “It has been a privilege to have been part of Wells Fargo over the years, and especially through the industry’s largest-ever merger.

Prior to his current position, Shrewsberry was head of Wells Fargo Commercial Capital, the successor to a commercial finance company he co-founded that became part of Wells Fargo in 2001. In addition to his current position, he is also a member of the market risk committee, the enterprise risk management committee, and the firm’s management committee.“Given his strong financial background spanning more than 20 years and his proven leadership ability, John is well positioned to lead Well Fargo’s established world-class finance team,” Stumpf said, adding, “Today’s appointments represent a natural evolution of executive responsibilities at our company. They also demonstrate the deep bench of high-caliber leaders at Wells Fargo and the value of rotating them into different roles to effect seamless leadership transitions.” Wells Fargo,Wells Fargo CFO to Take Over Wholesale Bankinglast_img
